Originally posted by QueenEpona: Ban Appeal Rules: 1. Appeals must follow the correct Ban Appeal Template and must be titled "Ban appeal for [In-game name here]". Filling out this template with your In-Game-Name helps us evaluate the situation, and we cannot do that if we are not given the correct information. 2. Please be patient with your appeal. We take the time to look over it, possibly with multiple staff to evaluate the situation so we can reach the best comment or conclusion. Do not try to bump it often. We will get to you as soon as we can. 3. Do not make multiple appeals. This includes if you feel your post has been ignored (please see Rule #2, above) 4. Be polite and respectful in your appeal. If you are disrespectful and/or rude, your appeal will be immediately denied, and your ban, if it is temporary, can be lengthened or made permanent. 5. Do not have a poll in your appeal asking players whether or not you should be unbanned. Regardless of if the ban is unfair, any poll will result in a denied ban appeal. To Players Making Appeals: Be honest in your appeal. While we are aware of why you are banned, we want to see that you're aware of the rules, tell the truth and show some bit of remorse. Saying "I don't know what I did" is not a valid appeal, otherwise you would not be banned. Remember to make your appeal carefully. Go through it with a fine comb, making sure your use of spelling and grammar are correct. These will reflect well on you. Ban Appeal Template: Full In-Game Name: Ban Reason (As shown on the ban screen): Person Who Banned You: Length of Ban: Appeal: To players that choose to reply to ban appeals: 1. Do not post in ban appeals that you have no direct involvement in. If you are not the victim, the banned player, or someone with hard evidence, then you are not involved. The staff should be the only ones commenting on a player's ban appeal unless the victim is replying or evidence is being provided. Screenshots of chat is acceptable if you think someone should/should not be unbanned. 2. Keep it civil and do not get into arguments with the person who was banned about their ban appeal. Unnecessarily rude comments will be warned and deleted. 3. Ban appeals are decided by staff members, no need to add your judgement or comments to the appeal, unless proof is provided, your comments will not alter the final decision.
